My thoughts dove tail on much of what has been previously written. Clearly the top 6 LW and bottom 6 F group is not good enough. I suggest the following

Kerfoot, 1st 2023 Rounder and a high prospect to AZ for Dvorak (500K retained)
2nd Rounder 2022 and Mikheyev to Det for Bertuzzi (sign 3 million x 4 - heavy bonuses)
Sign Nick Ritchie 2x 1.5

Bertuzzi - Mathews - Marner
Bunting - Tavares - Nylander
Robertson - Dvorak - Ritchie
Engvall - Kampf - Spezza

Rielly - Brodie
MuZzin - Holl
Sandin - Dermott

Campbell - Mrazek

Too much for Dvorak and I don’t think Arizona would want Keefoot anyways, they would just be trading him next year

Bertuzzi is a good target and if the Leafs could get him at that price I would be all for it.

Here is what I propose - this is assuming Leafs are able to keep McCann (and lose Kerfoot) to Seattle.

Trade Dermott, Robertson and and mid Rd pick for Garland (sign 4 x 3.5 million)

Trade Engvall plus for Fogele (sign at 3 x 2 million)

Sign Granlund 4 x 3 million
Sign Haula - 2 1.75
Oleksiak 3 x 2.5 million
Kuraly 2 x 1.15 million
Halak 1 yr x 2 million

Garland - Mathews - Marner
Granland - Tavares - Nylander
Fogele - McCann - Haula
Mikheyev - Kuraly - Spezza

Rielly - Brodie
Muzzin - Holl
Sandin - Oleksiak

Hard to imagine Halak accepting a 1 year deal for less than what he made last year, let alone the other parts.

Most of your signings seems reasonable as per value as do the trades.

Of all those signing, every single one was undervalued. So seems like a no all around.

Love Dvorak - perfect option to play 3C IMO. Would need to be Kerfoot, Liljegren, high pick) and hopefully 1 million retained.

This is exactly who I would pursue - Dvorak is an amazing 3C that Leafs can build a dynamic 3rd line around. And Kuemper has potential to be long term G solution. However I would off Kerfoot, Dermott, top prospect and 2022 1st Rd pick. I’d also try and get AZ to retain salary on Kuemper. I’d then pursue Fogele in a trade as a cheap buy my great upside replacement for Hyman. And Janmark, Hamonic and Bunting via FA.

Love the target in Dvorak - the PERFECT 3C we need to build a dynamic 3rd line. But I would trade for Kuemper with 50% retained. Kerfoot, Dermott and next years 1st.
Send Engvall plus to CAR for Fogele (I’m convinced he can be the next Hyman - and for 2 million plus) . Sign Janmark (or Granlund) as a UFA Hamonic to play 3rd pair RHD.

Bottom 6 still sucks, 2md and 3rd pairs weak and need a better back up.
